The GeforceGLbundle is for OpenCL only.

For anyone else with an ASUS GTX 560 non ti, this is what I did.
1. Update to latest version of lion (10.7.2)
2. Download this kext package- http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1801
3. Install all kexts and bundles in the zip file (Kext Utility)
5. You might need to add npci=0x2000 to your kernel flags and/or add <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>1</string> to the boot.plist
6. If you want to get the most performance out of your card, delete the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement kext and run the kext utility again. (I would recommend you do this as the 2D performance is poor with the power management on)
Hopefully this helps someone

I know it has been a few months but thought to ask you how things are going with you and if you have updated to 10.7.4 yet?
I brought the EVGA GTX 560 (non-ti) and will try your suggestions.
- I running
DSDT ###### setup
SMBIOS Macpro 3,1 (but will try Macpro 4,1)

Im still running 10.7.2 because I don't want to mess anything up, but I'm sure it works with 10.7.4. Just update first then install the files. Disregard step 6 though, it might help reduce lag but the easiest way is to put your display to sleep then wake it up again. For some reason this fixes all the lag, at least for me. I put the display to sleep option in the top right hot corner so whenever I reboot the computer, I just quickly put the display to sleep and wake it up again.
One thing I did notice with my card is that fading animations slow down the graphics a lot. So the fading animation the volume makes every time you change it causes the 3D performance to be really jerky for a second. Not really annoying unless you have a chat program that has messages pop up and fade out, then it becomes a problem.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Do you have an edited AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext for the GTX 560 on ML you can attach here?
I deleted the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext because it served no purpose. If your graphics card is running with full resolution and Quartz Extreme, then your all set.
I don't know if this method works on Mountain Lion, but if you need any help just ask.

He'll need your help editing NVDAGF100Hal if that's still required for the GTX 560 on Mountain Lion.

thanks. i tried installing them, but actually got a KP
Ok. Have you already tried installing the kexts I provided in Post #4? If you haven't then backup your NVDAGF100Hal and GeForceGLDriver.bundle and install GeForceGLDriver.bundle and NVDAGF100Hal.kext. If that doesn't work then send me your backed up .kext and .bundle and ill modify them for you.

The bolded letters is the device ID plus the last three characters of the vendor ID. Go to About This Mac and go to the graphics/displays section and tell me if any of these bolded lines is the same as the device ID plus the last three characters of the vendor ID. Or just send me a screenshot of your About Mac Graphics/Displays window.

If the power management kext isnt causing any problems, then don't bother removing it, your Bios should do most of the GPU control anyways, you won't burn out your card by removing the kext but I would keep it there anyways.
Also, is everything in /Extra, including org.chameleon.Boot.plist fine the way I have it?
Yup it looks just like mine

Hmmm, I guess it's something in my /Extra folder thats holding it back performance-wise, or that games just wont play well on OS X. I get 60FPS on Guild Wars 2 on Windows 8, but 7 FPS on OS X. Or maybe my CPU isnt being used properly on OS X. I dunno.
Well, I didn't see your cards model number in the NVDA kext so I added your device to the kext, try it and tell me if it fixes anything
